Equipd is a complete theocratic digital library including multiple Bible Translations, RSS and Podcast feeds, language translation tools, and a browser engine that can cache content for offline use.
*** Multiple Bible Languages and Translations ***
Read the Bible in over 100 languages, side-by-side. Compare the rendering of verses across different translations. Copy scriptures into your notes with one click. Listen to the Bible audio for many languages.
*** A Complete Library ***
Equipd provides easy access to the Watchtower and Awake magazines, Insight Volumes, Research Guide, Books, Brochures, Tracts and Yearbooks on WOL in over 150 languages. Many publications feature images and audio. Easily update a publication if the source material is changed on WOL. Quickly jump straight to the article on WOL to do more research.
*** Study Efficiently ***
The unique workflow of Equipd allows you to navigate between the Bible, study tools and publications with ease. It is optimised for use in the ministry, in personal study, or at the meetings. Use the supported gestures (such as swiping, two-finger tapping, and pinch/zoom) to get the most out of Equipd.
*** RSS and Podcast Feed Readers ***
Keep on top of the latest announcements, videos, and press releases from JW.org.
*** Language Translation Tools ***
Multiple ways to switch a Bible chapter or article you are reading between different languages. Tight integration with the iOS dictionary, with WOL.jw.org, with the Insight Volumes, and with Pleco. Those in the Chinese foreign language field get access to to auto-generated Pinyin, Zhuyin and Sidney Lau above the characters, or toggle the characters on/off.
*** Cache for Offline use ***
All text-based content and images can be saved for offline use. Read the content later, no Internet required!
*** Organise YOUR content ***
Bookmark your favourite scriptures. Save your favourite articles to the Briefcase by Topic, and group your favourite publications for quick access.
*** Annotations ***
Underline and highlight content from the publications and articles. You can add Notes right next to content it relates to, and even tell the Note to expand the text to show in the article so you can read it immediately without clicking.
There are so many other features in Equipd - I cannot list them all here. Overall I hope the hundreds of hours spent developing Equipd enables you to be "completely equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:17). Especially those working hard in the foreign language field!
Equipd requires iOS 7.0 and above. Any device that can run iOS 7 can also run Equipd, although an iPad 4+ or iPhone 5+ is recommended. Fully optimised for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.

*** IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ***
Dear Users of Equipd,
This will be the last update to Equipd. I will soon be removing Equipd from the App Store.
Equipd will continue to work for existing users even after it is removed from the App Store.
I will also continue to support Equipd for the foreseeable future, although I will direct most support requests to the online Support Forums at http://support.equipd.me.
I also strongly urge users to backup their copy of Equipd to their computer using iTunes. This will ensure you can reinstall Equipd if required. You will no longer be able to reinstall Equipd from the App Store once it has been removed.
For more details about this announcement and the implications for existing users please check the Support Forums.
It has been an absolute pleasure developing Equipd and assisting so many brothers and sisters around the world. I hope you have benefitted from Equipd over the past 2 1/2 years and wish you all the best in your continued zealous efforts.
PS: Equipd will remain on the App Store for a number of weeks to ensure most existing users get this final update. I anticipate removing Equipd from the App Store towards the end of December. Please encourage your friends to update as soon as possible so they do not miss out.
